***** NOT A TEACHER *****
I checked the Longman English Grammar (1988) by L.G. Alexander, and found some information that may interest you:
1. I will work on this tomorrow. = Intention, possibly a promise.
2. I will be working on this tomorrow. = Simple futurity.
Mr. Alexander says that #2 has a "softening effect." That is to say, it does NOT have "the element of deliberate intention" that "will" often has.
Mr. Alexander explains that the future progressive can also sound more polite, especially in questions:
3. When will you finish these letters? (The BOSS talking to an ASSISTANT)
4. When will you be seeing Mr. White? (An ASSISTANT talking to the BOSS)
