Founder Rodney J. Reynolds Taps Fresh Talent to Lead the Development of New and Engaging Content
(Black PR Wire) New York, NY - American Legacy Network Corp. has announced the launch of ALN Productions. The new production company will focus on developing new and engaging content utilizing the magazine's extensive archives and on the nooks and crannies of Black history and culture. Built on the American Legacy brand's 25-year foundation, the production company will bring little-known historical and cultural content to new audiences. American Legacy founder, Rodney J. Reynolds, is very excited to tap young talent to lead the development of the future of the brand.
“I’m extremely proud to work with three talented millennials who are bringing new life to the American Legacy Brand,” said Reynolds. “J’nelle, JP, and Joshua have energized our 25-year old brand. I’m confident that the productions will be enlightening, engaging, and entertaining.”
ALN Productions is led by Chief Production Officer J’nelle Agee, Chief Content Officer JP Reynolds, and Chief Marketing Officer R. Joshua Reynolds. Agee has extensive experience in television and news production. JP Reynolds is a podcast host and music artist. R. Joshua Reynolds is a marketing leader and vocalist. Both Reynolds also happen to be Rodney’s sons. Agee is the daughter of the famed NY Met Tommie Agee. Each looks forward to carrying on the legacy of Black history and culture through various forms of film and television productions. American Legacy’s archives have a history of inspiring feature films. A 1997 American Legacy magazine article on Wiley College inspired the 2007 period piece The Great Debaters, which starred Forest Whitaker and Denzel Washington who also directed the film.
The team has already begun distributing content with the release of a new short-form video series ALN Remembers. The first two episodes feature the 100th Anniversary of The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and Juneteenth and can be viewed on the company’s social media platforms and American Legacy Network at www.americanlegacynetwork.tv. The long-term strategy includes the development of additional short-form video projects, documentaries, television specials, and feature-length films. The company’s first television project is The American Legacy Challenge, a game show featuring high school students inspired by American Legacy’s “Know Your History” board game and set to premiere in 2022.
