Long Shot

In 2003, Juan Catalan was charged with a homicide he didn't commit. As he maintained his innocence under examination and served time in jail, a tenacious lawyer heard about the case through a mutual friend. As he met with Catalan, Catalan revealed that on the night of the murder, he was at a Dodgers game with his daughter. While this should've proven his innocence, the case was not so easy. It required the lawyer to meet with the LA Dodgers organization and go through hours of videotape in the hopes of finding definitive footage of Catalan sitting in the stands. Unable to find this, and with no credit card receipts from purchases made by Catalan at the game, the outlook began to look bleak. However, hope was renewed when it was revealed that a certain popular long-running comedy had been filming on-location at Dodger Stadium in the general vicinity of where Catalan had been sitting. Now the lawyer and Catalan, with the help of this show, hope that somehow there's clear footage of Catalan in any of the filmed scenes, thus proving his innocence. But it's a LONG SHOT.
