The creator of Seinfeld has helped save a man from Death Row after featuring him on his new hit TV show.

Larry David filmed one episode of his CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM show during a baseball game at DODGER STADIUM in Los Angeles - and lucky JUAN CATALAN just happened to be in the crowd.

Catalan was the prime suspect in the murder of teenager MARTHA PUEBLA, who testified against the 24-year-old's brother in a gang slaying case.

But Puebla was shot while Curb Your Enthusiasm was being filmed - giving Catalan the strongest of alibis as he fought a California death sentence.

The show was shown in court as Catalan was pleading his innocence after remembering an episode was taped with him in the audience.
