Shannon, who John shares with his wife Noel Mickelson, grew up visiting the sets where her father filmed, including "Coming to America" and "Good Times." At an early age, she was exposed to filmmaking dynamics and later focused on the craft.

The show won nine out of 37 Emmy Award nominations, a Golden Globe, and a Peabody Award during its run.
