XHDЯBZ (wordplay for "XH", Mexican radio and television satellite code, and "DRBZ", consonants of the creator's last name: Derbez). The show was a Mexican sitcom (sometimes surreal comedy) produced by Televisa and broadcast by the Canal de las Estrellas network. XHDRBZ emulates a television channel that broadcasts sketches, not unlike the Canadian sketch show SCTV. When a sketch finished, credits were shown, like in a real television program. XHDЯBZ was created by Eugenio Derbez in 2002, whose series marked his debut as producer.

The show ran for two seasons since 2002, until 2006. Derbez ended production, choosing to expand one of the show's most popular segments, La Familia P.Luche, into its own hour-long show.

Both shows are broadcast in the United States on the Galavisión network. Today the show is transmitted in Latin America and Europe.


The show emulated a TV channel. When the show began, the screen showed a notification saying that Televisa handed over the transmission to XHDRBZ. The show began with an introduction assimilating that of a Newscast. Each sketch is then presented as if it were a different show; in the end each sketch showed its cast and credits. When the actual show finished, it would present a notification which said Televisa would return to its usual broadcast.

Musical Theme

In 2002, the musical theme was interpreted by Gerardo Suárez and the music was produced by Suite Sync; in 2004 it was produced by Sensaciones Sónicas and in 2004 Galilea Montijo took care of the choreography.
