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.
On Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7:30pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered the season finale of I AM FRANKIE. In the season ender, "I Am Frankie...a Sitting Duck," at the Brain Squad State finals, Kingston and WARPA advance on their plot to take Frankie. And Andrew's true allegiances are revealed.
