Every child of the 90s probably remembers Doogie Howser, M.D., the series that brought us our first look at Neil Patrick Harris, who is as much a Disney fan as we are! He even developed a special margarita (check out our review here) for La Cava del Tequila at EPCOT!
If you recall, we originally mentioned that Disney+ was working on a NEW Doogie Howser reboot series.
Well, now that series has officially been ordered to series at Disney+. Its working title is Doogie Kameāloha, M.D., and if you can’t tell by the name, it’s set in Hawaii. The comedy will follow Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha, a 16-year-old girl, a prodigy who isn’t just a teenager, but also has a budding medical career as a doctor.
Kourtney Kang will write and executive produce (along with Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar as co-executive producers). Dayna and Jesse Bochco (who are the wife and son of the original show’s co-creator Steven Bochco) will produce.
It sounds like a new take on the Doogie Howser we remember and love, and we are looking forward to seeing what Disney+ does with the series. We’ll let you know when it’s set to air, once that information is available.
