About Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.
This reimaging of the iconic 1980s ABC series Doogie Houser, M.D. starts on a fresh note. It’s Lahela’s Sweet 16, and she wants nothing more than to breathe deep and experience this turning point in her teenage years. She’s got friends to celebrate with, not to mention to catch the eye of her surfer crush (Alex Aiono). And the last thing she wants is for her parents to get in the way of her plans. True to form, however, Lahela’s mom (Kathleen Rose Perkins) has more in mind for her daughter than a peaceful night of reflection and partying.
“[Kahela] and her mom have this very special connection where her mom is also her boss,” said the show’s lead actress, Peyton Elizabeth Lee. “So she has to navigate when she’s her mom’s daughter, and when she’s her mom’s co-worker. But at the foundation of the relationship, it’s all love.”
Family values are a crucial part of Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. Besides her work-savvy mother, her doting father Benny (Jason Scott Lee) strives to keep Lahela connected with the things that matter most: Herself, her place in all things, and how she connects with her free-spirited older brother Kai (Matthew Sato) and extroverted younger brother Brian Patrick (Wes Tian).
“It is Lahela’s parents that really ground her,” says Lee. “She has so many responsibilities, and her parents are always there to remind her that she is a 16-year-old girl and 16-year-old girls make mistakes and have crushes on boys and have troubles with their friends. They remind her that those things are okay and she should embrace that side of her as much as she embraces the child prodigy genius side of her.”
