Doogie Howser, M.D. is getting a modern update. Deadline reports Disney+ is developing a reboot of the ’90s TV show with a female lead.
The original series starred Neil Patrick Harris as the titular Doogie Howser, a teen doctor trying to balance his life in medicine and his life as an adolescent. The show ran on ABC from 1989 to 1993.
Now, Disney+ is working on a reboot of Doogie Howser M.D. with the working title Doogie Kealoha M.D.. The new series comes from Kourtney Kang and “centers on a 16-year-old half Asian, half white girl who works as a doctor” in Hawaii.
