Doogie Howser, M.D., ABC’s classic 1989 half-hour medical dramedy series, is making a comeback
and getting a makeover. I have learned that Disney+ is developing Doogie Kealoha, M.D. (working title),
a reboot of the Neil Patrick Harris-starring show with a female lead, which comes from How I Met Your
Mother and Fresh Off the Boat alumna Kourtney Kang and 20th Century Fox TV.

Set in Hawaii, Doogie Kealoha, M.D. centers on a 16-year-old half Asian, half white girl who works as
a doctor. The lead character’s ethnicity reflects Hawaii-born Kang’s own background — she previously
tapped into her experiences growing up in a mixed-race family in a comedy pilot for NBC.

LOL. That article (including the original article through the link) is kinda misleading as I thought that Kourtney Kang (as pictured) was going to be the star of the show. She does not look anything like a 16 year old.

LOL I did too. Would be nice if they could pick a local girl as the lead.

But knowing how Hollywood works, it will probably be someone in their 20's or 30's, part Asian, no ties to Hawaii and no Hawaiian blood. Hawaii 5-0 and other previous TV shows comes to mind with their lead characters.
