The veteran stars played Jonathan and Jennifer Hart, a wealthy couple moonlighting as amateur detectives, for five years from 1979, and they were brought back together recently for Entertainment Weekly's annual reunion issue.
Series superfans Poehler and Scott sat down with the pair for a filmed interview, which aired on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Thursday (17Oct13), during which Wagner revealed that he and Powers had to battle show producers to keep their characters in a state of loved-up bliss.
He explained, "You know, it's great to be married if it works. We never got into any domestic squabbles (onscreen). They (producers) constantly wanted to have conflict... between us and we fought very hard for that (not to have fights onscreen)."
Powers added, "(We wanted to be) two people who were adults, who were in love with each other and had chosen to be together and were there because of free will."
Poehler and Scott, who are co-stars on U.S. comedy Parks and Recreation, even reenacted the opening credits for Hart to Hart, donning Seventies' garb as they cruised down a highway in an open-top sports car.
