Nickelodeon USA May Premiere "I Am Frankie" In November 2017

Although unconfirmed, actor Tracy Johnson, who'll be portraying 'Engineer Johnson' in Nickelodeon’s upcoming futuristic drama series, I Am Frankie has revealed in the comments of a post on her official Instagram profile page, @iamtracyjohnson, that Nickelodeon USA may be planning to start to premiere I Am Frankie in November 2017!


In I Am Frankie, "Frankie Gaines (played by Alex Hook) looks like a typical teenager, but she harbors a very big secret – she’s actually a cutting edge, experimental android who must hide her true identity to avoid being tracked down by the evil tech company EGG Labs," according to Nickelodeon's show description. "Although Frankie attends a regular school, no one but the members of her family can know her secret. But fitting in and staying under the radar become much more complicated once she begins to make friends….and develop her first crush."

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 star Jayce Mroz, Carson Rowland, Kyson Facer, Mohana Krishnan, Uriel Baldesco, Kristi Beckett, Sophia Forest, Armani Barrett, Nicole Alyse Nelson, Joy Kigin, Carrie Schroeder, Jean-Carlos Casely, Michael Laurino, Todd Allen Durkin, Tracy Johnson, and Katelyn Adair. The actors join Alex Hook, who will play lead character 'Frankie Gaines' on the show!


I Am Frankie, originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia, was created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio, 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.

The English language version, I Am Frankie, is adapted for global audiences by Catharina Ledeboer, who has written multiple Nickelodeon hits, including most recently Every Witch Way (which completed four seasons) and Talia in the Kitchen.


Production of I Am Frankie is split between Los Angeles, California, and 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, serves as a multiplatform production hub for all of Viacom's brands. Christine Scowley is serving as Casting Director on the series.
