Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. on Disney Plus is such a great idea and now we get to delve in a bit as we hear from the cast and producers on some of their thoughts about the characters and the show itself. There is a lot of thought put into the characters and how they feel as well as their background that makes the story feel very true to itself, and at the same time you can tell that they put a lot of effort into making things realistic as well. It is great to see Peyton Elizabeth Lee as the lead on this show and it feels like the perfect fit.
Make sure to tune in to the Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. series which starts streaming on September 8th with new episodes releasing every Wednesday on Disney Plus.

Here is some more insight into Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. on Disney Plus:
Set in modern-day Hawai‘i, “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.
