The premise is distressingly simple: Retired martial arts and action movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a version of himself, who returns to a life as a private undercover agent. But as IndieWire’s Ben Travers pointed out, “It’s a show about Jean-Claude Van Damme made for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans. That’s fine, or it would be if the self-deconstruction was as intricately studied as Van Damme’s leg kick.”
Although its pilot premiered on Amazon in 2016, it didn’t officially kick off (heh) until 2017. The streamer canceled it in January 2018.
