The "Doogie Howser, M.D." revamp has found a new home at the Disney+ streaming service.

The new series, "Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.", has been picked up for a 10-episode straight-to-series season, according to Deadline.

A re-imagining of Neil Patrick Harris' TV hit about a young medical expert, the new series will feature a female lead – a mixed race, 16-year-old, half-Hawaiian girl.

It is set to go into production later this year for a 2021 premiere.

Casting is currently underway for the lead and the other major roles.

The original series ran for four seasons from 1989 to 1993 on ABC.
