Earlier today, top producer Shannon Amos took to her Instagram page rather colorfully when she posted a photo of herself posing with a colorful figure. In the picture, the Hollywood producer stood with a costume-clad form covered in bright-colored feathers.

The feathered masquerade wrapped one ‘wing’ around her with its other arm raised. The photo taken on her visit to Playa del Carmen Quintana Roo in Mexico had other relics in the background that looked like intricate stone designs from the Mayan civilization.

Shannon herself is a cynosure as she sports a mini-strapped grey top combined with a blue skirt and an exotic pair of earrings. She accompanied the colorful photo with a caption that read, “When the ancestors and spirit guides got you!.”

Today, Shannon owns Afterglow Multimedia, LLC, a company that produces digital and TV content, manages talent, and can boast of a client list including ESPN, Turner Originals, BET, and TVOne.

Many of her followers responded to the post in admiration of her appearance mostly. A particular follower described her skin glow as “blindingly alluring!” Another was merely curious about what the occasion was, thereby asking what festival necessitated the picture.

The TV content creator responded by saying there was “no festival” and that it was “just an encounter.” She went on to reveal what each item on the masquerade figure symbolized.

The “The Watermelon Heist” actor replied that “the owl represented wisdom” and that “the skull” represented “transition, death of the ego and transformation.”

The TV executive leads an exciting life, having had a taste of several aspects of showbusiness. She is the daughter of veteran African-American actor, John Amos and her Jewish mother, Noel Mickelson. 

She grew up getting familiar with production sets of popular sitcoms and movies such as “Good Times” and “Coming to America.” Her early exposure to the study of how the film business operated helped a great deal in her journey as a film producer besides other capacities she is certified capable of handling.

After decades of impact and rising through the ranks, she turned to start her own company through the new wave of digital technology. Before she broke off in 2009, she had already built a career working with the likes of Spike Lee, Ted Demme, MTV, America’s Most Wanted, BET, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

It is no surprise that the “A Woman Like That” actress has made a name for herself in the production industry. She is now part of a line of successful actors including her 81-year-old father who starred as James Evans Sr. on the CBS television series, "Good Times" back in the 1970s.

Last year in December, the octogenarian veteran made a special appearance in a “Good Times” live special before a studio audience. Shortly before this appearance, John also showed that his influence was not age or industry bound as he partnered with a New Rochelle teacher to write a book.

According to the “Roots” movie icon, the book, “A World Without Color” was aimed at children and was targeted at helping them develop empathy by teaching them acts of kindness.
