Disney has unveiled the official trailer of Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., which stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee in the lead. The show, which is set in Hawaii, is a reimagining of Doogie Howser M.D., which starred Neil Patrick Harris as a teenage physician.
Doogie Kamealoha,M.D. follows Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha, a 16-year-old prodigy-turned-doctor. While she works at the ER, she has to go through everyday problems of any other teenager. The trailer for the show immediately shows us the teenage doctor in action, as she jumps in to save a life on the beach, using her quick-thinking and skills.
Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. will depict the hardships she goes through as she finds it difficult to find a balance between work life and her teenage-related problems. While her mother is her boss where she works, she struggles to divide time between her work hours and date life. Lahela tries to find ways to strike a balance in life, like any teenager is supposed to.
Apart from Peyton Eliabeth Lee, the trailer also features Kathleen Rose Perkins, Matthew Sato, Wes Tian, Emma Meisel, and Mapuana Makia, as well as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Ronny Chieng.
