You should take everything you read in the IMDB trivia pages with a fistful of salt, but one piece of information has stuck with me in the decade or so since I first read it. Curb Your Enthusiasm saved a man’s life. Literally. Because this man was arrested for a murder he didn’t commit and was facing the death penalty and the only hope of clearing his name meant the producers of HBO’s comedy series finding him in b-roll footage they filmed at Dodger Stadium at the time of the crime. Now that’s trivia worth knowing.
And now, this trivia tidbit has become a new documentary called Long Shot, which is set to premiere at the Telluride Film Festival before making its way to Netflix next month.
