Adam Scott and Amy Poehler in the Greatest Event in Television History

7 Jun

Last year Adam Scott and Jon Hamm recreated the opening credit sequence of ’80s detective show Simon & Simon in “The Greatest Event in Television History” and now Scott is back, this time with Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler to tackle a shot for shot recreation of the Hart to Hart titles. Credit sequences have evolved since the late ’70s when Hart to Hart premiered and now it isn’t uncommon for a show to simply have a title card or a very short theme song.

This is in part down to the increased amount of commercials and a long title sequence would reduce how much can be fit into the episode and some shows such as New Girl have a long and short version of their opening music. It’s a shame in a way that credit sequences like this don’t really exist anymore, so this is a project I can fully get behind. Plus I’m missing Parks and Rec so seeing Scott and Poehler together is a bonus.

As with the last event (which can been seen over at Adult Swim) we get to see how the credit sequence came together and you might be surprised as to how little Amy and Adam like each other considering how closely they work on Parks and Rec (this is all in jest of course). Both look fantastic in their Hart to Hart costumes with Poehler rocking the feathered hair to maximum effect.
