Amazon Sets Premiere Date for New Action Comedy 'Jean-Claude Van Johnson'

Amazon has today announced a premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series Jean-Claude Van Johnson.

The 10-episode first season will debut on the streaming service on Friday, December 15.

Jean-Claude Van Damme stars as Jean-Claude Van Johnson, a global martial arts and film sensatio - except he's operating under the simple alias of "Johnson." 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.

The cast also includes Kat Foster, Moises Arias and Phylicia Rashad.

Dave Callaham created the action comedy. He executive produces with Van Damme, Peter Atencio, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker. Scott Free Productions produces.
