Adam Scott continues to display connoisseur taste for the long-lost art of television opening credits sequences, which have shrunk from one-minute-plus opuses of introductory cheese to mostly a single note and a title card—Parks And Recreation remains one delightful exception. His Adult Swim special The Greatest Event In Television History, hosted by a deadpan Jeff Probst, featured the recreation of the Simon & Simon opening credits with Jon Hamm and Megan Mullally. Now Scott is ready to tackle a sequel special—set to air June 6—for another hourlong amateur detective series from the 80s: the Aaron Spelling-produced, Robert Wagner/Stefanie Powers-starring Hart To Hart. Along for the ride this time are his Parks costar Amy Poehler, and Horatio Sanz as Max, the inexplicable narrator of the credits. No word yet on whether Scott has plans lined up for Remington Steele, Matlock, or Miami Vice, though given the cheesy, buddy nature of these specials, The Dukes Of Hazzard would seem a logical next step.
