ABC has renewed Tim Allen vehicle, "Last Man Standing," and picked up two new comedies: "Cristela" and "Fresh Off the Boat."

"Cristela" stars Cristela Alonzo in the titular role, Carlos Ponce as Felix, Terri Hoyos as Natalia, Andrew Leeds as Josh and Sam McMurray as Trent. The 20th Century Fox TV Production is written by Alonzo and Kevin Hench. Executive producers are Hench, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Shawn Levy.

Here is the "Cristela" description: In her sixth year of law school, Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She's stuck straddling the old culture she's trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she's trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream.
