Nickelodeon UK To Premiere 'I Am Frankie' On Monday 8th January 2018

A cutting edge, experimental android navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager in I Am Frankie, Nickelodeon’s newest serialised live-action show, launching with two back-to-back episodes on Monday 8th January 2018 from 6:00pm on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland! I Am Frankie tells the story of Frankie Gaines (Alex Hook), 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. In fact, you could say she's Wired Differently than other teenagers! Following the series premiere, new episodes of I Am Frankie will continue to air daily at 6:00pm.


Nick UK & Eire will encore both episodes from the series premiere the same evening from 7:30pm, and the following morning, Tuesday 9th January 2018, from 7:00am. Following the series premiere, each new episode will encore the same night at 7:30pm, and the following weekday morning at 7:00am. Nickelodeon UK & Ireland will also replay each episode that premiered during the week every weekend from 10:30am.

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 (Nicole Alyse Nelson), 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 (Mohana Krishnan), Lucia (Uriel Baldesco) and Makayla (Kristi Beckett) 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?



In the series premiere of I Am Frankie, "I am…a Gaines" (#101), after escaping from EGG labs, Frankie must adjust to life in a new high school while hiding her identity as an android! Then, in episode two, "I Am ... in a Math Bee", Frankie works hard to keep her android identity a secret, but makes new enemies during a math competition at school; Frankie must risk being discovered when a bug in her system forces her to plug herself directly into the school's internet.
