TV legend Phylicia Rashad has been getting attention for her villainous role on FOX’s Empire. Now, she takes on another challenge in the new Amazon series Jean-Claude Van Johnson.
Jean-Claude Van Johnson stars martial artist and actor 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.
Rashad plays the head of the secret ops group, who is also Van Damme’s boss.
The show co-stars Kat Foster and Moises Arias, and counts Ridley Scott among its executive producers.
Jean-Claude Van Johnson is set to start streaming on Amazon Prime Video Dec. 15.
