In an interview with Variety, fans find out exactly how Neil Patrick Harris feels about the new show. Harris said “I’m so happy about Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.” After the original set in Los Angeles, the newest update will be set in Hawaii.
He also spoke very highly of Doogie Kameāloha, M.D. creator Kourtney Kang. He noted, “The creator of it was a big producer on How I Met Your Mother. I think setting it with a female protagonist is a great call … I think it’s in really good hands.” (cbr.com)
Lee will play the female lead, Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha. Her father in the show will be played by Jason Scott Lee who is a native Hawaiian. The part of her mother will be played by Kathleen Rose Perkins. She is not only her mother in the show, but also the chief-of-staff in the hospital where Doogie is completing her residency.
The show currently does not have a premiere date, but keep watching MickeyBlog for updates as this new Doogie Howser MD continues in development.
