Doogie Kamealoha M.D. - Kathleen Rose Perkins Joins Cast By SpoilerTV (January 15, 2021, 1:00 pm)
Episodes alumna Kathleen Rose Perkins is set as a lead opposite Peyton Elizabeth Lee in Disney+’s upcoming comedy series Doogie Kame?loha, M.D., a Doogie Howser M.D. reboot from How I Met Your Mother and Fresh Off the Boat alumna Kourtney Kang and 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
Written by Kang and set in present-day Hawaii, Doogie Kame?loha, M.D. reimagines the Neil Patrick Harris-starring half-hour medical dramedy with a female lead. It follows Lahela “Doogie” Kame?loha (Lee), a 16-year-old mixed-race girl who juggles a budding medical career and life as a teenager. Guiding Lahela — and also complicating things — is her family, including her spitfire Irish mother Dr. Clara Hannon (Perkins), who’s also Chief of Staff at the hospital and Lahela’s supervisor, and her Hawaiian “Local Boy” father who struggles to accept that his daughter is no longer his little girl.
