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?

Hit the jump to watch The Greatest Event in Television History in case you missed that zaniness, plus Adam Scott's Jimmy Fallon appearance from last night:

      It'd be awesome, but it'll probably be something with two dudes and a lady, unless they have Horatio Sanz or Adam Scott doing drag. Also, Cagney and Lacey only has big parts for two people, while there are three actors (Scott, Poehler, Sanz) with big parts in the new one.

        C&L is the first thing that popped into my head. I just assumed that Adam would play Tyne Daly.

        Remington Steele seems like an option but I can't remember how it opens, I only remember the lipstick and gun. It might just be pics like Moonlighting.

          There is ONLY one possibility: Hart to Hart. And it will be amazing.

            I agree. It has to be Hart To Hart. I can even hear Horatio Sanz saying "…And when they met…it was MURDER!"

            Good call. I bet that's it.
