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.

The original series, which starred Harris as a teenage physician balancing the challenge of practicing medicine with the everyday problems of teenage life, was created by two of TV’s top showrunners of the past three decades, the late Steven Bochco and David E. Kelley, and produced by Steven Bochco Prods. and 20th Century Fox TV. Bochco’s widow, Dayna Bochco, and son, Jesse Bochco, executive produce the reboot alongside Kang as well as Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar. 20th Century Fox TV, where Kang, Kasdan and his producing partner Mar are overall deals, is the studio.

It would be cute if they got Harris to appear as a cameo or a background character also working at the hospital.
