WATCH: Jean-Claude Van Damme is Back in Action in Trailer for ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’

Jean Claude Van Johnson

Amazon released a trailer for their upcoming original series, “Jean-Claude Van Johnson.”

The official synopsis reads:

“‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ stars global martial arts and film sensation Jean-Claude Van Damme as ‘Jean-Claude Van Damme,’ a global martial arts and film sensation…and, operating under the simple alias of ‘Johnson,” the most dangerous undercover operative in the world. Unhappily retired, he’s now whiling away his days in superficial Hollywood… until a chance encounter with a lost love lures him back into the game, eventually forcing him to confront the greatest enemy he’s ever faced: a Bulgarian drug cartel.

Just kidding it’s himself.”

Van Damme is the Belgian martial artist who founded a career on low budget martial arts films such as “Blood Sport” and “Double Impact.” In recent years, his self-deprecating humor has allowed him to become something of a parody of himself, with films like “JCVD.”

“Jean-Claude Van Johnson” also stars Kat Foster (“Rebirth”), Moises Arias (“Ben-Hur”), and Phylicia Rashad (“Creed”).

The series is a half hour comedy, and the first season will be five episodes.

The first season will be available exclusively for Amazon Prime members on December 15.
