Nope. The 2600 hardware causes the TV to just render a single field. This is
why 2600 games (and most classic consoles) have the thin horizontal lines
going through them. AFAIK, the only classic system to generate a true
interlaced display was the Bally Astrocade.

But it just doubled the scanlines. It couldn't draw independently on each field.

In theory the 2600 can.
