COZI TV Schedules Two The Office Stunts; Adult Swim Picks Up New Seasons of Animated Comedies

The Office Smell-a-Vision

Fans of COZI TV, the multicast network and showcase for some of the most beloved and time-tested TV programming, will be treated to two upcoming events related to The Office, one of the most celebrated and quoted television comedies of the past 20 years. In the first stunt, slated to air on Monday, August 26 at 10 PM ET (check local listings), COZI TV will present the "Dinner Party" episode of The Office in Smell-A-Vision, a watch-and-sniff-along special in which viewers can experience the episode's unique aromas as they occur. A replay will air on Labor Day, Monday, September 2 at 10 PM ET (check local listings). The second event, "A Hardin's Day Night," a marathon to air on Sunday, September 22 from 1 PM to 12 AM ET (check local listings), focuses on the earlier television appearances of actress Melora Hardin (The Bold Type, Transparent), whose portrayal of the volatile Jan Levinson remains an enduring part of the continued success of The Office.

COZI TV is currently the only free broadcast home of The Office, as the series continues to demonstrate a remarkable second life in pop culture and social media. For the "Smell-a-Vision" event, the network will distribute scratch-and-sniff cards, while supplies last, in various ways, including:

* New York City: Ticket-holders attending off-Broadway's The Office: A Musical Parody at the Orbach Theatre at The Theatre Center
* San Diego: Attendees of the July 18-21 Comic Con
* Online: Fans can request a card at the COZI TV page on Facebook or at COZITV.com. Those cards will be sent out by mail.

"Dinner Party" is the infamous and celebrated episode in which Jan and Michael host an evening of awkward moments and simmering hostility. For the Smell-A-Vision event, Melora Hardin will appear on COZI TV to guide viewers on how and when to use their scratch-and-sniff card to experience select aromas on cue with key moments in the episode. Among the scents are the centerpiece of the menu, osso buco, as well as the waxy aromatic fragrances of Serenity by Jan, her entrepreneurial undertaking following her litigious exit from Dunder Mifflin. In the second event, "A Hardin's Day Night," COZI TV offers a marathon featuring Melora Hardin's many guest-starring roles ranging from her girlhood appearances on Little House on the Prairie to Quincy, in which she portrays a rebellious punk rocker. The showcase will also present Hardin's appearances on Murder, She Wrote and, of course, memorable Jan episodes of The Office. As an added bonus, viewers will be treated to episodes of COZI TV shows featuring Hardin's real-life father – and fellow actor – Jerry Hardin, who gained wide acclaim for his portrayal of Deep Throat on the hit series, The X-Files. Guest starring turns by Jerry in Murder, She Wrote and The Rockford Files will run within the 11-hour programming event.


Adult Swim

Adult Swim, the top destination for young adults for more than a decade, continues to invest in creator driven, original animated content with season renewals for Mr. Pickles, Ballmastrz: 9009 and Tigtone, plus the season 12 return of Squidbillies on Sunday, August 11. Lastly, Toonami adds all-new gen:LOCK to the network's popular anime-obsessed line up. This mecha-anime style series from Rooster Teeth will make its exclusive broadcast premiere on Saturday, August 3.
