DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s web site, September 2021) In “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.,” 16-year-old prodigy Dr. Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha juggles a budding medical career with the daily challenges of teenage life. At the hospital, Lahela’s genius confounds both patients and colleagues, who dub her “Doogie” after the ‘90s TV series “Doogie Howser, M.D.” At home, her doting dad, Benny, and her career-driven mom, Clara, the hospital’s Chief of Medicine and Lahela’s boss, fear she’s growing up too fast. Lahela struggles to operate in two very different worlds and stay balanced. Fortunately, her free-spirited older brother Kai and idiosyncratic younger brother Brian Patrick help keep her grounded. Steph, her wisecracking best friend, can always be counted on to lighten the mood, frequently climbing through Lahela’s bedroom window to costar in TikTok videos or dish on Lahela’s crush, Walter. Fellow medical residents Noelani and Charles, as well as hot-shot heart surgeon Dr. Lee, joke about the obvious gap in age and interests, but genuinely respect Lahela’s expertise. With support from her caring — and comical — ohana (family and friends), Lahela is determined to make the most of her teenage years and forge her own path.
