Using only stock footage, the company Dissolve has created “Faux Shows,” a reel of opening sequences for generically titled fake series. The slate of shows includes Gritty Police Drama, starring “former ’90s heartthrob,” “such a nice man,” and “woman who holds her own.” There’s also its spinoff, Gritty Police Drama: Another Big City and reality series Reality Show On An Island.
