In 2006, Hines executive produced and directed an improvised comedy series titled Campus Ladies for the Oxygen Channel about two housewives in their 40s who enroll in college and live in the freshman dorms.
She has also appeared on series such as Unsolved Mysteries, Suddenly Susan, The Wayans Bros., Friends, Everyone Loves Raymond, Wanda at Large and Scrubs. Additionally she provided the voice of Kate for the animated series Father of the Pride for DreamWorks.
