Remember “Doogie Howser, MD”? It’s Getting a Reboot with One Major Change

’80s kids will definitely remember Doogie Howser, MD. It starred a 16 year old Neil Patrick Harris, years before he became a household name as Barney Stinson. In the show, he played Doogie Howser, a teenage physician who balances the challenges of medicine with teenage life. Disney+ is set to do a remake with one major change: the lead will be a girl.

According to reports, the reboot will have the working title of Doogie Kealoha, M.D., and will follow a half-Asian, half-white 16-year-old girl who aced college and medical school, and is working as a doctor in Hawaii.

There’s no word when it will air on the Disney+ platform.

The reboot will be produced by Dana and Jesse Bochco, the wife and son of Doogie Howser, MD co-creator Steven Bochco, who passed away in 2018.

The original show ran from 1989 to 1993, and won three Emmys for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy Series or a Special.
