"Eu Sou Franky" ("I am Franky") is the story of "Frankie" an experimental android who navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager. Frankie looks like any other girl, but functions like the newest computer: complete with Internet access, extensive memory and a hard disk. Frankie goes to school and no one but the members of her family know her secret. She adapts to the real world quite well, despite having no feelings or emotions, but all that changes when she begins to experience family life, make friends and have a boyfriend. Her biggest challenge will be to fall in-love without her operating system malfunctioning!

"Eu Sou Franky" stars Venezuelan actress María Gabriela de Faría ("Isa TKM", "Grachi") as Franky Andrade, Martín Barba ("Último año") as Christian Montero, Eduardo Pérez as Roby Mejía, Daniela Arciniegas as Tamara Franco, Jorge López as Wilson Andrade, Paula Barreto as Sofía Andrade, María José Pescador as Clara Andrade, Alejandra Chamorro as Delfina Montero, Jimena Duran as Margarita Montero, Brandon Figueredo as Benjamín Franco, George Slebi as Paul Mejia, Luis Duarte as Iván Villamil, Emmanuel Restrepo as Mariano Puentes and Isabella Cristina Restrepo as Loli Rivas.

Created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio, Nickelodeon Latin America picked up the series for 60 hour-long episodes (60 x 60'). "Yo soy Franky" is produced in Colombia by Televideo and is distributed by Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) The Americas through its Division of International Sales Programming (IPS), the division responsible for the international distribution of programs, formats and activities produced by the brands of the company. A second season is currently in production.

Following the huge success of the first season of "Yo soy Franky", Nickelodeon recently announced that Catharina Ledeboer ("Every Witch Way", "Talia in the Kitchen") is currently adapting "Yo soy Franky" for Nickelodeon's global audiences! Already in development, the English language version, "I Am Frankie", will go into production during the second half of 2016. Nickelodeon has ordered 20 x 30 minute episodes which will be distributed to Nickelodeon's global audiences spanning 160 countries and territories via the brand's more than 80 channels and branded blocks.

"I Am Frankie" will be the first series to be produced in the new state of the art Viacom International Studios in Miami. The studio, which boasts two 15,000 sq. foot stages and was completed in late 2015, will serve as a multiplatform production hub for all of Viacom's brands.
