Jean-Claude Van Damme headlines the new Amazon pilot, Jean-Claude Van Johnson
This Friday, August 19, Amazon Video is set to debut a trio of new pilots, including the Jean-Claude Van Damme series, Jean-Claude Van Johnson. You can take an early look at the show with a new series of stills featured in the gallery viewer below.
If you need to eliminate a political rival, debilitate a multinational corporation, or overthrow an entire government—and you need it done with the utmost secrecy—there’s only one person to turn to: one of the most internationally recognizable movie stars in the history of film. Jean-Claude Van Johnson stars Jean-Claude Van Damme in the title role, playing a global martial arts and film sensation…and, operating under the simple alias of “Johnson,” the most dangerous undercover private contractor in the world. Lucky for the world’s bad guys, he’s been retired for years… unlucky for them, a chance encounter with a lost love is about to bring him back to the game… and this time, he’ll be deadlier than ever. Probably.
Jean-Claude Van Johnson also stars Kat Foster (Your Family or Mine), Moises Arias (The Middle), and Phylicia Rashad (Creed). The show is executive produced by Peter Atencio (Key and Peele), Ridley Scott (The Good Wife), David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle) and Van Damme. From Scott Free Productions, the Jean-Claude Van Johnson pilot is directed by Atencio and written by Dave Callaham (Mortal Kombat).
Also premiering this Friday will be the new pilots I Love Dick, starring Kathryn Hahn, and The Tick, based on the Ben Edlund comic book superhero. Amazon customers are once again invited to watch, rate and comment on the shows to help determine which will become an Amazon Original Series.
