LOS ANGELES, May 5 (UPI) -- Twentieth Century Fox says it changed the title of its "Neighborhood Watch" comedy to avoid confusion with the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
Martin, 17, was fatally shot by 28-year-old neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February. Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense after Martin attacked him, was arrested last month and charged with second-degree murder.
"As the subject matter of this alien-invasion comedy bears no relation whatsoever to the recent tragic events in Florida, the studio altered the title to avoid any accidental or unintended misimpression that it might," Fox said in a statement issued to E! News.
