Netflix has released the new trailer for its upcoming documentary Long Shot, which follows the incredible story of how Larry David ended up saving the life of Juan Catalan, a father who was falsely accused of murder.

To evade the death penalty, Catalan had to prove he was at a Dodgers game the night of the crime — and differentiate himself from the game’s other 56,000 attendees. That’s where Larry David comes in.

David was shooting an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm at the game that same night, and Catalan’s defense lawyer scoured through hours of tape hoping to see him in the background of a scene. As the title aptly puts it, it was a long shot, but Curb Your Enthusiasm ended up saving Catalan from death row.

Watch the trailer for Long Shot above, and look out for the documentary when it hits Netflix September 29.
