D&E Productions will close its office today at 4 p.m. (EDT) and remained closed until Monday, August 29, as a safety measure due to Hurricane Katrina, D&E head David Adamson said this morning.

"For those who have already placed orders today for DVDs," Adamson said in an announcement to customers, "all orders will be shipped on Monday. If you have orders, please fax them or email them in as you normally do. Any orders received on Friday or this weekend will be processed and shipped on Monday."

Adamson also urged retailers to visit D&D's online wholesale site, DanDVideo.com, for new release information.

For further questions, the D&D Studio phone number is 305-493-4057.
