Watch the Opening Title Sequence for DOOGIE KAMEALOHA, M.D. Coming to Disney+ Next Month
Disney+ has been working on a new show inspired by the classic sitcom Doogie Howser, M.D. for quite some time and now we know when to watch it. Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. is set to begin streaming on Disney+ starting September 8. The streaming giant recently released the show’s title sequence which fans of the original series will find very familiar with a re-imagined version of the theme song from composer Wendy Wang and Jake Shimabukuro.
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.
Set in modern-day Hawai'i, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. is shot on location in O’ahu. Creator and executive producer Kourtney Kang (How I Met Your Mother, Fresh Off the Boat) who was born in Hawaii and raised in a Philadelphia suburb by her Irish mom and Korean dad, infuses her own life's stories and experiences into this series that is centered on a mixed-race Asian-American girl.
Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi Mack) is starring as Lahela and is joined by Kathleen Rose Perkins (Big Shot) as Dr. Clara Hannon, Jason Scott Lee (Mulan) as Benny Kamealoha, Matthew Sato (Hawaii Five-O) as Kai Kamealoha, Wes Tian as Brian Patrick Kamealoha, Emma Meisel (American Horror Story) as Steph, Mapuana Makia (Finding 'Ohana) as Noelani, and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (UnREAL) as Charles. Alex Aiono (Finding ‘Ohana) and Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians) will be recurring stars for the series as Walter and Dr. Lee respectively.
