The 88,000-square-foot studio will serve production for network brands, such as Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central. Their goals to help “global productions in multiple languages.” Including daily scripted series, music special, game shows and short-form content for mobile and digital platforms.

Viacom is already produced shows for  Nickelodeon’s telenovela Every Witch Way, Grachi, Talia in the Kitchen,  and I am Frankie.

“We have had terrific success with the recent live-action productions we have coming from Miami, and we are very excited to be committed to doing more,” said Cyma Zarghami, president Viacom Kids and Family “We are constantly looking for new creative ideas and content formats that allow us to tell stories in a completely different way, and this facility will certainly forward that effort.”

The studio has two 15,000-square-foot sound stages, 12 post-production rooms, 16 dressing rooms, 6-star dressing room, two make-up rooms, two-green rooms, production offices, commissary seating for up to 200. Warehouse space with wardrobe rooms with washing and dryers and rooms to accommodate other places such as boardrooms.

This is a great for filmmaking too. Florida is a beautiful state, and they have beautiful location shots including the beaches. Check them out here. And here too.

Sources say by one of the actors, the building is built over a gravesite. So, if it is big, and covers a lot of space. It took over a grave site.

I am Frankie

 

FRanke TV showI am Frankie is an America Show on Nickelodeon. An Argentine writer Marcella Citterio created the show and Catharina Ledeboer adapted to a whole new for an audience can relate too.  Catharina is credit for “Every Witch Way” (which completed four seasons) and “Talia in the Kitchen.”

“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 knows 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.

The story is fantastic and the cast is amazing. This show is much fun to watch. Compare to other shows on Nick, this is so much better. Since The Thundermans is going to Leave Next year. There should give it a second season and broadcast in Nickelodeon USA.  It’s a great family show. If you haven’t seen I Am Frankie, I highly recommend that you watch it.
