Writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron will be the subject of an HBO documentary produced by one of her sons, journalist Jacob Bernstein.

The project, titled "Everything is Copy," will also have Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter as executive producer, the network announced Friday.

Ephron died at age 71 last year, of pneumonia after a battle with leukemia. She was the writer behind films "When Harry Met Sally," "You've Got Mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle." Her last project was "Lucky Guy," the current Broadway play about journalist Mike McAlary, with Tom Hanks in the starring role.

The documentary's title is a reference to Ephron's feeling that all of life's experiences provide fodder for a writer.

The documentary project was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
