413 Hope St. is an American drama television series which aired on the Fox network from September 11, 1997 to January 1, 1998. The series was co-created by actor/comedian Damon Wayans, who made a stark departure from his usual comedic work.

The ensemble cast—headed by Richard Roundtree—included Jesse L. Martin, Shari Headley, and Kelly Coffield.



413 Hope St. was named for the address of a New York City crisis center. Its founder, a successful corporate executive named Phil Thomas (Roundtree), started the center in the building at the site where his teenage son was gunned down after refusing to relinquish his sneakers to a street thug.[1]

The topics addressed by the series included drug addiction and recovery, HIV and AIDS, foster care, re-integration into society after incarceration, and homelessness.

The series was cancelled after 10 episodes, with its final broadcast airing on New Year's Day 1998.
