Last year, Disney announced it would be remaking the ABC series “Doogie Howser” for Disney+ and it would be called “Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.”
Disney has officially announced is that Peyton Elizabeth Lee has landed the title role in the series.
This half-hour medical drama comedy series is being created by Kourtney Kang (“Fresh Off the Boat,” “How I Met Your Mother”) is set to write and executive produce for 20th Television.
Peyton has previously starred in the main roles of the Disney Channel series “Andi Mack” and the Disney+ Original movie “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals”.
Set in modern-day Hawaii, the 10-episode comedy follows Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha, a mixed race 16-year-old girl, juggling a budding medical career and life as a teenager. Guiding Lahela (and also complicating things) is her family, including her spit-fire Irish mother who’s also her supervisor at the hospital, and her Hawaiian “Local Boy” father struggling to accept that his daughter is no longer his little girl.
