It is being reported that Amazon has cut back on its comedy lineup today, with one of the casualties being new series Jean-Claude Van Johnson. The move comes just one month after the show's six-episode freshman run.

In the half-hour action dramedy, Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a fictionalized version of himself. But aside from being just a global martial arts and film sensation, he also operates as the world's most-dangerous undercover agent. Now retired but discontent with his new lifestyle, a chance encounter lures him back into action.

While the show was met with mixed reviews, its short run came and went without much fanfare. A strategy is apparently one of the driving forces behind the cancellation, as Amazon is said be moving to focus on larger-scale dramas that appeal to a wider range of audiences going forward.
