HBO has ordered a pilot for the new comedy, 12 Miles of Bad Road.

The cable network is set to go ahead on the show about a Dallas matriarchy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it's believed that the pilot will be an hour, but should the project get picked up to series, sources said it's likely to be a half-hour show.

HBO is also in negotiations to order five half-hour episodes of In Treatment, a serialized drama that would be redeveloped from a hit Israeli series.

12 Miles of Bad Road is in preproduction and will be shot in the summer; no word on a production schedule for The Treatment.
