Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. Trailer Pays Tribute to the Original Show with a Meta-Twist



Hollywood loves reboots. Recently many shows from the ’80s and ’90s, such as Magnum P.I., MacGyver, and coming this year, The Wonder Years, have all been rebooted and given fresh makeovers. The results have been mixed as such things always are. Disney has gotten into the reboot business. Their newest revival is a fresh take on the classic show Doogie Howser, M.D., which, of course, introduced the world to the wonderful Neil Patrick Harris, who has gone on to have an amazing career. Today, we have a look at the trailer for Doogie Kealoha, M.D..

The reboot, filmed in Hawai’i, focuses on 16 year old “Doogie” Kameahola, who has, much like Doogie Howser, M.D. had in the original show, graduated as a doctor at an incredibly young age. The show follows Doogie as she navigates life as a doctor while also trying to navigate life as a teenager.

In the latest footage, we are introduced to Lahela Kamealoha as she springs into action to save a man’s life on the beach. She quickly assesses the man’s condition and grabs what she needs in order to perform a life saving procedure right there in the sand. The trailer features an enjoyable little tribute to the original show, paying homage to Neil Patrick Harris’s character. Little touches like that can only help to make the show appeal to fans of the original. A reboot like this can be a challenge, but it looks like Disney has managed to recapture the heart of the original while bringing it into a new generation.

The official description of the show from Disney+: “Set in modern-day Hawaii, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. – a coming-of-age dramedy inspired by the hit medical series Doogie Howser, M.D. – follows Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha, a 16-year-old prodigy juggling a budding medical career and life as a teenager. With the support of her caring and comical ‘ohana (family) and friends, Lahela is determined to make the most of her teenage years and forge her own path.

Guiding Lahela (and also complicating things) is her career-driven mother Dr. Clara Hannon who’s also her supervisor at the hospital, her doting father Benny who helps keep her connected to what matters most, her free-spirited older brother Kai, her gregarious younger brother Brian Patrick, her best friend Steph, her surfer crush Walter and her fellow hospital colleagues, Dr. Lee, Charles and Noelani.”

Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Jason Scott Lee, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Wes Tian, Ronny Chieng, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Mapuana Makia, Matthew Sato, Emma Meisel, and Alex Alono. Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. premieres September 8, 2021 on Disney+.
