Nickelodeon Benelux To Premiere 'I Am Frankie' On Monday 19th February 2018

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, premiering Monday 19th February 2018 on Nickelodeon Benelux! The series 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. In fact, you could say she's Wired Differently than other teenagers! Locally titled Ik ben Frankie, the series will premiere daily at 18:00 uur on Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) and at 19:10 uur Nickelodeon Belgium (België; Flanders).

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?

Online at nickelodeon.nl and nickelodeon.be, fans can watch the first two episodes of Ik ben Frankie, "Ik ben een.. Gaines" and "Ik ben.. in een wiskunde bui", dubbed in Dutch, ahead of the show's premiere.

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 received its world premiere on Monday 11th September 2017 on Nickelodeon USA, and is currently being distributed to Nickelodeon’s global audiences spanning 170+ countries and territories via the brand’s more than 80 channels and branded blocks. The series was recently greenlit for a second season, which is slated to start production in March 2018 in Miami, Florida.
