Adam Scott has co-created, written and directed a series of specials for Cartoon Network's nighttime "Adult Swim" programming block entitled "The Greatest Event in Television History". These specials consist of humorous "behind-the scenes" looks at the modern-day recreation of the opening credits sequences from some popular TV programs from the 1970s and 1980s. Scott has enlisted several of his co-stars from "Parks and Recreation" to appear in the specials, including Amy Poehler, Megan Mullally, Jon Glaser, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn, Jason Mantzoukas, and Nick Kroll.
Scott starred in the 2013 film "A.C.O.D." in which he played a character with many similarities to Ben Wyatt, inasmuch as his parents were divorced and had a very contentious relationship. The film co-starred Amy Poehler.
