Aloha Friday and aloha new details about Disney’s updated Doogie Howser series!

Today Disney released the trailer for Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., a coming-of-age dramedy inspired by the ‘90s series. Get your first look at Peyton Elizabeth’s Dr. Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha in the clip below.

Doogie Kamealoha, 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 and her gregarious younger brother Brian Patrick; as well as her best friend Steph and her surfer crush Walter, and her fellow hospital colleagues, Dr. Lee, Charles and Noelani.

In addition to the trailer, Disney also announced guest stars and directors for the series. Upcoming guest stars include Randall Park, Max Greenfield, Margaret Cho, Al Harrington, Amy Hill, David S. Jung, Jae Suh Park, Ty Simpkins, Kylie Cantrall, and Jake Shimabukuro. Park also served as a director, along with Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez. Executive producers Jake Kasdan, Jesse Bochco, and Erin O’Malley also direct.
