Adam Scott Has Another ‘Greatest Event in Television History’ with Amy Poehler Out June 6th
Last year, Adam Scott created an 11-minute TV special for Adult Swim called The Greatest Event in Television History, in which he and Jon Hamm recreated the title sequence to the cheesy ’80s detective show Simon & Simon, shot for shot. Scott revealed last night on Jimmy Fallon that he has a follow-up special set to premiere on Adult Swim June 6th and that it’ll star himself, Amy Poehler, and Horatio Sanz. Scott said they’ll be recreating a title sequence from an hour-long show but wouldn’t reveal which one, explaining, “I can’t say what it is because of very strict rules that I made up.”
After Greatest Event became a viral hit last year, Adult Swim signed Scott and his wife Naomi Scott, who produced the first special with him, to make three more via their company, Gettin’ Rad Productions. The Amy Poehler one will be the first of these, and Scott says the other two will be made later this year. So, you have until June 6th to spend nonstop guessing which TV title sequence Scott, Poehler, and Horatio Sanz redid together. Any ideas?
