From 2016 through 2018, Scott appeared on NBC’s The Good Place as a demon named Trevor. In 2017, he portrayed Ed Mackenzie, the husband of Reese Witherspoon’s character Madeline, on HBO’s Big Little Lies. This role might just have been a fan favorite, simply because of his dashing beard!
Most recently, he began starring in and producing Severance for Apple TV+. He is also the co-creator and co-host of several podcasts distributed by the Earwolf network. The first podcast, launched in February 2014, is called U Talkin’ U2 to Me? In each episode, he and co-creator and co-host Scott Aukerman discuss the band U2 and use those talking points to segue into improv for the duration of the episode. They launched another podcast in the same format in 2018, R U Talkin’ R.E.M. Re: Me?, covering the work of the band R.E.M. instead. Then in July 2020, they premiered yet another podcast focusing on the Red Hot Chili Peppers titled R U Talkin’ RHCP Re: Me? However, it was renamed U Talkin’ Talking Heads 2 My Talking Head by the second episode when Aukerman and Scott found themselves discussing American rock band Talking Heads instead.
In 2021, Scott also had a recurring role on the animated adult comedy series Inside Job, a workplace comedy in a world where many conspiracy theories are real. However, even though the series already had been renewed for a second season, Netflix decided to cancel it despite its critical success. Scott appeared in five out of eighteen episodes.
Scott met his wife Naomi through a mutual friend in 1998, and they were married in 2005. She began working as a television and film producer in the early 2000s.

Their first series was The Greatest Event in Television History for Adult Swim. Since then, they have produced several films and television shows, such as Ghosted on Fox, in which Adam also stars.
