They are in the midst of filming the second season of Disney+’s “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D>” here, but word is out that Peyton Elizabeth Lee and Milo Manheim will co-star in “Prom Pact,” a rom-com for youths.
Lee, of course, portrays the titular character of the teen doctor in the island-based family comedy. Manheim plays Nico, a newbie in the “Doogie” family, and the romantic interest of the young doc. Coincidentally or not, an off-screen Lee-Manheim dating relationship was the buzz online before the second season filming began.
In “Prom Pact,” to be produced and directed by Anya Adams, Lee will play Mandy Yang, a high school senior, and Manheim is cast as her beau, Ben, during prom season of the 1980s.
The premise is that the youths are awaiting prom dates, though Yang’s key interest is her anticipated enrollment at Harvard, but she learns she is still on the wait-list of applicants. In the midst of this worrisome issue, she attempts to find a way in, even if it means that she asks for help from the dude she despises, the campus jock all-star, Graham Lansing, to be enacted by Blake Draper, whose father happens to be Harvard grad and a powerful senator. She signs on as his tutor.
Other cast members include comedian Margaret Cho, as Ms. Chen, a counselor, and David S. Jung, as Lee’s father, Tom. Both have appeared in season one of “Doogie.”…
Filming will be in Vancouver, B.C., and “Prom Pact” will screen on Disney+ in the spring of 2023. …
Wanna party with Bruno Mars?
It’s not easy, nor affordable, to secure tickets for a Bruno Mars concert in Las Vegas, one of his prime markets for in-person shows.
So an alternative site, if you’ve got the inclination or loot, might be a super duper vacation splurge in the Bahamas, complete with a Labor Day weekend pool party.
Mars, an island native, will appear in a luxe Pina Colada Pool Party celebration Sept. 1 through 4, at the SLS Baha Mar. The centerpiece will be a Mars performance with his Silk Sonic partner, Anderson .Paak, on Sept. 4
The venue’s website has details. …
And that’s Show Biz. ….
