What's New with Loring: Loring was recently awarded the Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award at the 56th Annual Writer's Guild of America awards. There are articles about the award here and here; photographs of the show (which was rebroadcast on the Bravo! channel) appear here and here.
Loring's current main project is a stage version of his Emmy Award-winning film Conspiracy. In his spare time, his current passion is watercolor; his works are regularly featured in local charity art shows.
He's also been busy giving talks at
showings of Conspiracy. For that script,
Loring won the
Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing of a Drama (his
second Emmy) and the Writer's Guild
Award for Outstanding Script of Television Drama.
