Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305) has a brand new show you won’t want to miss: I Am Frankie. Love all things high-tech and AI? Then stick around to find out more about Frankie and her friends.
I am Frankie sees Frankie Gaines go through life as a normal teenager. From fun and friends to drama and high school, it’s all a regular day for Frankie and those around her. Except… she’s a robot! She needs to keep her cutting-edge android-self a secret otherwise she’d have to deal with the evil tech company EGG Labs - as well as everyone else.
Luckily for Frankie, she has Sigourney Gaines – her creator and ‘mother’ – in her life who pretends that Frankie is her real human daughter. Life isn’t easy for Frankie juggling evading EGG Labs and fitting in at school, but it’s all in a day’s work for the super cool android.
