The Story of ‘Hope Street’
Hope Street is located in Port Devine, a tiny Northern Irish coastal town. The plot centers on DC Leila Hussain’s entrance, which is a total surprise to everyone (Amara Karan). Leila is the town’s first Muslim police officer.
“The town’s warm-hearted and good-natured residents — as they work together to create a future rather than focusing on past differences,” the BBC stated in a statement.
Although each episode is devoted to a particular criminal tale, the program is mostly concerned with the ups and downs of police officers in and around Port Devine.
Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, adds, “I’m delighted that we’ll be bringing the stunning background of Northern Ireland to BBC One Daytime audiences with this fascinating new drama.” Hope Street is an intriguing neighborhood, and I’m convinced that our viewers will appreciate getting to know the residents.”
