“Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.” Coming To Disney+

We are thrilled to hear about a reboot coming Disney+ based on the ABC series Doogie Howser MD called Doogie Kameāloha MD. The show will focus in on 16-year-old Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha who is juggling a budding medical career and life as a teenager at the same time. The show will be coming to Disney+ in September and will have 10 episodes.

Star Peyton Elizabeth Lee shared some information regarding the show to Entertainment Weekly.

Every episode has the medical story line, and then it also has her personal story line. In some episodes you’ll see the line blur between her personal life and her professional life, but definitely in every episode you’ll see some sort of medical story and also a personal story.

Lee also shared what was difficult about this role as a medical doctor:

It’s always very important to me to try as much as I can to pull from real life experience and portray these events as authentically as I can, and so when there were scenes about me going into surgery or performing these procedures, I had no real-life experience to pull from or anything even close to the situations that Lahela was in, so I would say that was the biggest challenge. It was really important to me that when you watch the show you believe that she’s a doctor, you buy into this idea of a 16-year-old doctor and it not seeming ridiculous. We had a doctor on set anytime we were shooting hospital scenes, and I would just drill lines with him and go through the procedures with him and we would watch videos and he would show me how he did things and what these words even meant to really create the most authentic portrayal of what it would be like if there was a 16-year-old doctor.

Will you be tuning into see “Doogie Kameāloha, M.D”?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
