I don't understand WHY King's books are constantly being adapted, re-adapted and sequelised for TV and film and NOBODY has made a series of this book yet. It is probably the last great King novel that hasn't been touched (sullied?) by Hollywood.
It's not that they haven't tried, it's just been in development hell since the beginning.

It's now listed as a mini-series, but it's still with Amblin (Spielberg), so I wonder if it'll ever happen. I suppose it had the most chance when Garris was to direct it; whether you like his films or not, he gets things done. But it was deemed too expensive.
