Amazon Lists JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON Among Its August Pilot Debuts

Amazon is making it a priority this week with several announcements for its upcoming dated comedy pilots. Of course, the biggest priority for our readership would be the inclusion of action star Jean-Claude Van Damme's newest series, Jean-Claude Van Johnson which premieres with the rest - I Love Dick starring Emily Gould and The Tick with actor Peter Serafinowicz on August 19 in the U.S., UK, Germany, Austria and Japan.
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 (JCVD) playing “Jean-Claude Van Johnson,” 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 stars Van Damme along with 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 pilot is directed by Atencio and written by Dave Callaham (Mortal Kombat).
The pilots will stream via the Amazon Video app for TVs and Fire TV as well as mobile or online as fans help determine which will be the next Amazon Original Series. Van Damme will soon appear in select theaters and on VoD/Digital HD in John Stockwell's martial arts classic reboot, Kickboxer: Vengeance on September 2 from RLJ Entertainment.
