"This is the page for the TV series Helltown, for the location Helltown, go to Helltown (Ohio)"

"Helltown" was a one-hour drama that aired on NBC from September 4, 1985 to December 25, 1985. The series starred former Baretta star Robert Blake as Noah "Hardstep" Rivers, a hard-living Catholic priest at a church in a crime-ridden neighborhood on the east side of Los Angeles. Rivers was rather unusual for a priest, as he was a former criminal, played billiards, and didn't have the greatest of speaking skills. Despite all of this, Rivers was the perfect man to lead his church, as he grew up in the neighborhood, so he knew about the gangs and drug dealers who lived there and attacked his parishioners.

The series featured a theme song sang by Sammy Davis Jr.
