A wrongly accused man is facing a possible death sentence for a murder he didn't commit. His lawyer must come up with video evidence that proves he was at a Dodgers Game on the night of the murder.

The lawyer asks the accused man does he remember anything unusual at that baseball game. The accused man replies I think they were filming an episode of Larry David's HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm." And what happens next ... is the kind of stuff that only happens in movies.

Check out the trailer for "Long Shot," a new Netflix documentary that tells the remarkable true story of Juan Catalan, an innocent man who was falsely accused of murder but was proven innocent at trial, thanks in part to Larry David's help.

Directed by Jacob LaMendola, "Long Shot" is set to premiere this weekend at the Telluride Film Festival, and will then be released on Netflix September 29th.

synopsis:
An innocent man is accused of murder, leading his dedicated attorney on a wild chase to confirm his alibi among thousands of people in a baseball stadium. To tell the whole story, the search would lead him from the LA Dodgers, to a cellphone tower, to the office of the entertainer Larry David. On the night in question, television cameras happened to be positioned throughout the stadium, and captured a story of remarkable circumstance.
