Moises Arias is ready to chop and kick…
Amazon has set the lineup for its 2016 comedy pilot season, with the 22-year-old Colombian American actor and former Hannah Montana star’s project Jean-Claude Van Johnson scheduled to debut on August 19 in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and Japan.
Starring martial arts film star Jean-Claude Van Damme, the pilot centers on “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.
In addition to Van Damme and Arias, the project also stars Kat Foster and Phylicia Rashad
From Scott Free Productions, the pilot is directed by Peter Atencio and written by Dave Callaham.
Arias credits include television appearances on Wizards of Waverly Place, Everybody Hates Chris and The Suite Life on Deck, as well as an acclaimed role in the coming of age film The Kings of Summer.
Amazon customers can stream and review the pilots to help choose the next Amazon Original Series that will be available for Amazon Prime members.
The pilots will be available via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online.
