Plot Synopsis

Based on YO SOY FRANKY, the Colombian TV series created by Argentine author Marcela Citterrio, I AM FRANKIE is a half-hour series that tells the story of Frankie Gaines, 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. 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, 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, Lucia, and Makayla 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? On Monday, September 4, 2017 at 7pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon debuted a sneak-peek episode of I AM FRANKIE, with the official series premiere scheduled one week later on Monday, September 11 at 7:30pm.
Season 2 premiered Monday, September 10, 2018, airing each weeknight (Mon-Fri) at 8pm. In the second season, Frankie has finally acclimated to teenage life at Sepulveda High with the help of her best friend Dayton and their tight-knit group of loyal confidantes. However, things quickly become complicated when a new android arrives at the school, and the world finally learns that androids exist, and the military company, WARPA, returns with a new threat. Throughout the season, Frankie aims to keep her true identity a secret, while protecting her family and friends and attempting to live a normal life. In the season opener, "I Am ... Planning an Escape," Frankie is determined to rescue Andrew and the gang turns to Tammy for help. Andrew pays the price for refusing to cooperate with WARPA. And two new students start at Sepulveda High.

One month earlier -- on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 8-9pm ET/PT -- Nickelodeon premiered "I Am...Eliza," a special one-hour special episode of I AM FRANKIE. While Frankie and Cole hide out from WARPA (Weaponized Android Research Project Agency), Eliza, another android who has been out on her own and wreaking havoc on the world, holds the Gaines family hostage! And when Frankie finally comes face to face with Eliza, can she defeat Eliza and save her family?
