I Am Frankie is a science fiction television series that first premiered on Nickelodeon in 2017. The show stars Alex Hook as Frankie Gaines, a teenage girl who is actually a highly advanced android designed to look and act like a human. The series explores the challenges and adventures that Frankie faces as she tries to navigate the complexities of teenage life while keeping her true identity a secret from those around her.

The show is set in the fictional town of Sepulveda, Florida, where Frankie lives with her adoptive parents, Col. James Gaines (Michael Laurino) and his wife, Sigourney (Carrie Schroeder). Frankie attends Sepulveda High School, where she makes friends with a group of quirky and diverse classmates, including Dayton (Nicolas James), Cole (Carson Rowland), and Lucia (Amina Alzouma).

Despite her advanced programming and intelligence, Frankie struggles to fit in with her human peers, often finding herself the victim of bullying and discrimination. She constantly worries about her true identity being discovered, especially as her android components begin to malfunction and affect her behavior.

Meanwhile, the series also focuses on the sinister organization that created Frankie, known as EGG (Eliza Genetic Group). Led by the ruthless and calculating WARPA agent, Eliza (Joyce Giraud), EGG will stop at nothing to retrieve their creation, even if it means putting Frankie and those closest to her in danger.

Throughout the series, Frankie faces a number of challenges and obstacles as she tries to balance her life as a teenage android with her need to protect her friends and maintain her secret. She must navigate her growing feelings for her human crush, Cole, while also dealing with the constant threat of being discovered by EGG.

I Am Frankie explores a number of themes, including the nature of humanity, identity, and the dangers of advanced technology. The show also touches on topics such as fitting in, bullying, and acceptance, making it both entertaining and relevant to its target audience.

The series is notable for its strong performances, particularly from Alex Hook, who delivers a nuanced and sympathetic portrayal of Frankie as she grapples with her own identity and the challenges of teenage life. The supporting cast is also solid, with notable performances from Kyson Facer as the geeky and lovable Dayton, and Sophia Forest as Frankie's best friend, Jenny.

Overall, I Am Frankie is a well-crafted and engaging science fiction series that offers a fresh and unique take on the classic "android with emotions" trope. It is fast-paced, entertaining, and has enough heart and humor to appeal to a wide audience.

I Am Frankie is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (52 episodes). The series first aired on September 11, 2017.
