Synopsis: “‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ stars global martial arts & film sensation Jean-Claude Van Damme playing “Jean-Claude Van Damme,” a global martial arts & film sensation, also operating under the simple alias of “Johnson” as the world’s most dangerous undercover operative. Unhappily retired, a chance encounter lures him back into the game, forcing him to confront the greatest enemy he’s ever faced.”
If you haven’t watched the pilot on Amazon yet – you’re making a grievous life error. Imagine one of the minds behind Key & Peele wrote a JCVD parody show but actually got JCVD to star in it! That’s what this show is all about. It’s not all jokes though, the pilot really touched on some of the more poignant parts of being an aging action star/super spy. Van Damme did an amazing job in that first ep and judging from this trailer, he continues to walk that fine line between action, drama, and comedy like only Van Damme can (see JCVD the movie if you have any lingering doubts about that).
