Miami studio announces first TV series

Viacom International Studios in Miami has announced that teen sci-fi drama I Am Frankie will be the first TV series to film at its facility at EUE/Screen Gems Studios Miami later this year.

The studio resources include a pair of 15,000 sq ft sound stages, post-production facilities and office space. 

I Am Frankie will be an English-language version of a Colombian drama telling the story of an advanced human-looking android adapting to the life of a teenage girl.

“The studio brings even more opportunities to create content for a variety of formats – specifically for three pillars,” said Pierluigi Gazzolo, president of Viacom International Media Networks for the Americas, in comments to The Hollywood Reporter.

“For Latin America, as we have a talented multilingual team in Miami; for English-speaking markets, such as the US – this will be our third telenovela format that we’re marking for a global audiences from Miami; and international audiences.”

Florida remains well-positioned to serve the Latin American market, but a lack of support for the state filming incentive has left the production industry struggling to attract big-budget Hollywood shoots.

Ben Affleck’s Live by Night has been a high-profile recent loss for Florida. Based on a novel by Dennis Lehane the story is set in 1950s Ybor City, a region of Tampa, but the lack of incentive support led Affleck to recreate the location in Georgia instead.
