Here are a few shows you might not know are coming:

Steven King's Dark Tower is getting the HBO treatment.

HBO is also doing a series Masters of the Air, a miniseries parallel to Band of Brothers about the air force.

I wonder if Steven King will play himself being hit by a van?

Hmm Wiki says shit has gone down but they may have started filming for the HBO portion already:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Tower_(series)

Quote:
Initially, in 2007 J. J. Abrams was connected to a film adaptation[20] but later revealed he had removed himself from involvement in the project.[21] On September 8, 2010, an official announcement was made that the series would be brought to both the big and the small screens via a trilogy of feature films and two seasons of a television series to bridge gaps between the films.[22] According to a press release from Universal Pictures from October 29, 2010, the first Dark Tower film would open on May 17, 2013.[23] On July 19, 2011, Universal pulled its support from the production of the Dark Tower films and television series. According to reports, the studio was unable to come to terms with producer Ron Howard.[24] Despite this, Stephen King remains confident Howard will see the project through with another studio, and Howard confirmed the adaptation is still on track, noting that HBO will now carry the television series portion of the project.[25][4] On March 13th 2012 it was reported that Warner Bros is now interested in making at least the first film, and would be in prime position to green-light the TV element through its sister company, HBO. Russell Crowe, tipped to play Roland Deschain, is reportedly still on board. Reports indicated that filming may have commenced as early as the first quarter of 2013.[6] However, Warner eventually passed on the film.[26]


So it may still be in flux

Two bits of awesome (and related) news recently.

We're apparently getting the Eddie Dean that everyone wants/should want.

Twin Peaks is coming back as a nine-episode miniseries on HBO. It's supposedly going to be set in modern times, and it will continue the mythology of the original. David Lynch is writing and directing, and it's airing in 2016.
