Nickelodeon Poland has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon Poland (Polska) will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon Latinoamérica's hit telenovela Yo soy Franky, locally titled Jestem Franky, weekdays at 20:05 from Tuesday 14th February 2017! The news follows the success of the Colombian teen telenovela Chica vampiro on Nickelodeon Polska.
Following the premiere of each episode, Nickelodeon Polska will encore each all-new episode the following weekday at 14:30.
Yo soy Franky (I am Franky) follows the story of a teenage girl robot called Franky who has been designed to be just like a real teenage girl. Designed by a scientist named Sofia, who Franky calls her Mother, Franky looks like any other girl, but functions just like the latest computer technology, complete with WiFi access, extensive memory and a hard disk. No-one but the members of her human family know Franky's secret.
Yo soy 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. Yo soy Franky 2.0 (season two) will introduce newcomer Andrés Mercado (Grachi), who will play Trece (Thirteen), a new handsome and intelligent android created by scientific laboratory Egg, who also happens to be very different to Franky. Trece will be a "son" of Kasandra (Natalia Durán) and a "brother" to Doce (Twelve, Viviana Santos Pulido). Throughout the season, viewers will discover whether he's friend or foe.
In addition to starring in Grachi, Andrés also starred in the Mexican telenovela Atrévete a soñar (Dare to Dream), and was also the first-ever Colombian to win a Kids' Choice Awards award in 2011!
Yo soy Franky is produced in Colombia by Televideo and is distributed 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.
