If you’ve heard of Neil Patrick Harris (are there people who haven’t heard of MPH?), then you might also remember the show that gave him his start — Doogie Howser, M.D.
This late ’80s/early ’90s TV show followed the daily like of Doogie Howser, the world’s youngest surgeon. Well now, a reboot featuring a girl in the title role is in development AND it’s coming to Disney+!
According to Variety, the new show is set to have “a 16-year-old half-Asian, half-white female lead who works as a doctor in Hawaii.” As of now, the working title for the show is Doogie Kealoha, M.D.
20th Century Fox was the producer of the original shows so it follows that the reboot will now be produced by 20th Century Studios. Kourtney Kang is acting as writer and executive producer with production from Jake Kasdan, Melvin Mar, and Dayna and Jesse Bochco. Dayna and Jesse Bochco are the wife and son of a Doogie Howser, M.D. co-creator, Steven Bochco.
We’ll keep an eye out for more information on Doogie Kealoha, M.D. — especially a release date — and we’ll let you know as soon as we do!
