'Doogie Howser' Reboot Coming to Disney+ With Multiracial Female Lead

Dust off your stethoscope and get the details below.

The Hollywood Reporter states Disney+ is in talks to reboot the classic teen medical dramedy, Doogie Howser, M.D.

The new version will be focusing on a 16-year-old half-Asian, half-white female lead who works as a doctor in Hawaii. Hawaii-born Kang-who worked with Neil Patrick Harris on How I Met Your Mother-said that she tapped into her own experiences growing up in a mixed-race family for the project.

Cellphone towers attacked as conspiracy theory connecting 5G and coronavirus gains steam
In effect of David Icke's already removed YouTube interview, more people were calling for attacks on 5G towers. A recent conspiracy theory claimed that the coronavirus spread with 5G.

The original Doogie Howser - which ran for four seasons on ABC - starred Neil Patrick Harris as the titular prodigy, a teenage physician who tried to balance the challenges of practicing medicine with the day-to-day struggles of adolescence. Kang will executive produce the reboot along with Jake Kasdan (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and his producing partner Melvin Mar for 20th Century Fox TV.

Doogie Kealoha, M.D., is the working title for the revival, which is in the works at Disney+ with executive producer Kourtney Kang, according to a new report from Deadline on Wednesday.

Bochco's widow Dayna and son Jesse are attached to the female centered reboot as other executive producers. I imagine name recognition is probably most effective if an audience has an established relationship with a property instead of just being vaguely aware of it. The premise will likely follow somewhat in the footsteps of the original series.
