Pittsburgh-based fashion designer Kiya Tomlin, wife of Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, will be profiled on the HBO topical series "State of Play."

In the episode, which will air at 10 p.m. EST tonight on the network, Ms. Tomlin is one of three women spotlighted for their relationships with men whose careers are in professional sports. She's joined by DeLana Harvick, wife of NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, and Megan Lehnhoff, who's married to Steele High School (Cibolo, Texas) head football coach Scott Lehnhoff.

"They wanted to see how women who are married to prominent sports figures, just how we support our husbands and the different ways we do it," Ms. Tomlin told KDKA-TV, the Post-Gazette's news partner.

The episode also focuses on Ms. Tomlin's career in fashion as she continues to build her ready-to-wear brand, Uptown Sweats.

"I am the only, if not one of the only, head coach's wife in the NFL that works, so that was intriguing to me," she said.
