“The Greatest Event in Television History” is getting a sequel.
“Parks and Recreation” star Adam Scott teased the upcoming sequel during an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Tuesday (April 9). He says that like the last one, which featured Jon Hamm and Scott as “Simon and Simon,” it will be a faithful re-creation of the opening credits of a 1980s television show. The new installment will air June 6 on Adult Swim and also feature Scott’s “Parks and Rec” co-star Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz.
Scott wouldn’t say which show they were doing this time, but it has to be “Hart to Hart,” right? Scott and Poehler could easily step into the shoes of Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers, and Sanz is a natural for Max (Lionel Stander), right down to the gravelly voice. You can watch the “Hart to Hart” opening here.
Scott also says he plans to do a couple more “Greatest Events” this year, so your suggestions as to what he should tackle next are welcome in the comments.
