NICKELODEON'S NEW DAILY SCRIPTED SERIES, "I AM FRANKIE," BOWS MONDAY, SEPT. 11, AT 7:30 P.M. (ET/PT)

BURBANK, Calif. - Aug. 28, 2017 - A cutting edge, experimental android navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager in I Am Frankie, Nickelodeon's newest serialized live-action show, debuting Monday, Sept. 11, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT). I Am Frankie tells the story of Frankie Gaines (Alex Hook), who looks like any other human girl, but harbors a big secret--she functions as a high-tech computer, complete with internet access, extensive memory and more. The series premieres daily, Monday through Friday, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

After escaping from tech company EGG Labs to avoid being used for evil purposes, Frankie enrolls in high school in an attempt to pass as a typical teenager. Despite having an inside full of wires and circuits, Frankie begins to adapt well by bonding with her new best friend Dayton (Nicole Alyse Nelson), juggling loads of homework and dealing with boy crushes, all while keeping her true identity a secret.

Suspicion soon arises about Frankie, as popular girls Tammy (Mohana Krishnan), Lucia (Uriel Baldesco) and Makayla (Kristi Beckett) question her quick victory during a math competition. To complicate things even further, Frankie's wiring goes haywire as she starts experiencing human emotion, creating more challenges and adventurous fun. How long can she keep her true identity a secret while maintaining herself as a normal teenager?

Filmed in the new state-of-the-art Viacom International Studios in Miami, I Am Frankie was originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia. The series is created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio. The English language version is produced by Paradiso Pictures and Nickelodeon Latin America.

I Am Frankie will sneak peek on Nickelodeon on Monday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). Beginning Aug. 21, the premiere episode will be available across all Nickelodeon platforms.

I Am Frankie will be distributed to Nickelodeon's global audiences spanning 170+ countries and territories via the brand's more than 80 channels and branded blocks.
