Filming is scheduled to begin shortly on the upcoming Nickelodeon pilot, I Am Frankie. The series will be the first global series to be produced at the new Viacom International Studios in Miami. Created by Argentine writer Marcela Citterio, it was originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia. Catharina Ledeboer (Every Witch Way, Talia In The Kitchen) is adapting the English-language version for global audiences. I Am Frankie, is the story of “Frankie” an experimental android who navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager. Frankie looks like any other girl, but functions like the newest computer: complete with Internet access, extensive memory and a hard disk. Frankie goes to school and no one but the members of her family know her secret. She adapts to the real world quite well, despite having no feelings or emotions, but all that changes when she begins to experience family life, make friends and have a boyfriend. Her biggest challenge will be to fall in-love without her operating system malfunctioning!
Filming will take place between April 17th and throughout the Summer season in Miami, FL.
