The episodes debuted on the Antena 3 network, and were later rerun by the same network as well as cable/satellite channels Neox and Paramount Comedy. Antena 3 Internacional satellite channel broadcasts the series to Latin America. The series debuted in 2003 and became popular thanks to its funny characters, witty script, and capacity to integrate and poke fun at contemporary issues; the program presents a caustic satire of many of the 'types' found in Spanish society. In 2006, Antena 3's rival Telecinco acquired a 15% share of Miramón Mendi, the company that produces the series.
