A gender-swapped reboot of Neil Patrick Harris’ Doogie Howser, M.D. (1989–1993), the update starred Peyton Elizabeth Lee as teen doctor Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha. As explained by one of her peers in the series premiere, “Remember Doogie Howser, that show from the ’90s? She’s like a real-life Doogie Howser! That’s why we call her Doogie.”
