ABC is pulling promotions for its upcoming sci-fi drama series “Invasion,” which profiles the aftermath of a devastating Florida hurricane that serves as a cover for an alien invasion. The promos were pulled in response to the devastation of the Gulf Coast area by Hurricane Katrina. For now, the network plans to go forward with the series’ Sept. 21 premiere.

“First and foremost, our thoughts go out to all those affected by this tragedy,” the network said in a statement. “As with anything as serious as this, we are taking great efforts to assess sensitivities with regard to our series. We are currently looking at all our programming and marketing efforts with this in mind. Our changes and adjustments are ongoing.”
