Action star and martial arts expert Jean-Claude Van Damme declares at the outset of the new trailer for his upcoming Amazon series “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” that he “used to be super-famous,” and indeed, the project parallels, to some extent, his own life.
The new series comes out Friday, Dec. 15, on Amazon Prime Video. The new trailer, released today, can be seen below.
Van Damme plays a version of himself as an undercover operative who’s also an unhappily retired Hollywood star. In his life as a secret agent, he uses the alias “Johnson.”
Along with Van Damme, the series stars Kat Foster (“Your Family or Mine”), Moises Arias (“The Middle”), and Phylicia Rashad (“Creed”). The show is executive produced by Dave Callaham (“The Expendables”), Peter Atencio (“Key & Peele”), Ridley Scott (“The Good Wife”), David W. Zucker (“The Man in the High Castle”) and Van Damme.
From Scott Free Productions, the series is directed by Atencio, and written and created by Callaham.
