Peyton Elizabeth Lee Cast as Lead in "Doogie Howser M.D." Disney+ Reboot

Peyton Elizabeth Lee Cast as Lead in “Doogie Howser M.D.” Disney+ Reboot. In 2020 we shared that a ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.‘ Series Reboot was in development for Disney+ and now we have our new lead! Originally the popular 90’s series, Doogie Howser, M.D. was featured on ABC from 1989-1993. Now the series is getting a reboot on Disney+, only this time with the working title “Doogie Kealoha, M.D.

Disney+ has announced Disney Channel Star Peyton Elizabeth Lee has been cast as Doogie Kealoha for the series. The reboot will follow Kealoha, a 16 year-old girl from Hawaii with mixed ethnicity (half Asian-half White). Kourtney Kang (How I Met Your Mother, Fresh Off the Boat) will be developing the series for 20th Century TV and Disney. Executive Producers for the reboot include Kourtney Kang, Jake Kasdan, and Melvin Mar. It is currently unknown when the Doogie Kealoha, M.D.series will premiere on Disney+.  No casting choices or other production details have been shared at the time of writing.

Presumably the series will follow a similar path to the original which followed a teenaged genius working as a licensed physician and navigating the complexity of becoming an adult.
