In Jeux de glaces, the TV film adaptation of Agatha Christie's They do it with Mirrors by France Télévisions, Pierre Montauban is the parallel character of Christian Gulbrandsen in the original novel. He is the best friend of the late first husband of Rose-Marie Bousquet. After the death of her first husband, Pierre helped Rose-Marie manage the fortune left to her by her husband, a large part of which went to help Rose-Marie's second husband, Etienne Bousquet set up a rehabilitation centre for youth who had committed violent crimes. Pierre observed some irregularities in the accounts of the centre which was named "La Main Tendue" (the Outreached Hand). He came to the centre to further his investigations but was murdered shortly after arrival. The manner of his killing is similar to that portrayed in the original novel. Montauban is also the owner of the newspaper "La Voix du Nord", the newspaper that journalist Alice Avril works for.

The character of Pierre Montauban is played by Gérard Pinteau.
