ABC has ordered two more comedy series for its 2014-15 lineup — “Cristela” and “Fresh Off the Boat” — and renewed Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” for a fourth season.

All three shows hail from 20th Century Fox TV.

“Cristela” stars Cristela Alonzo (pictured) as a law student balancing her ambition with her Mexican-American family’s expectations. Alonzo penned the pilot with Kevin Hench.

“Boat” is set in the 1990s in Orlando, Fla., revolving around an Asian immigrant family that has just moved from Washington, D.C. Nahnatchka Kahn, creator of ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23,” wrote the pilot and exec produces with director Jake Kasdan. Series is based on the memoir by celeb chef Eddie Huang, who is a producer on “Boat.”

ABC earlier this week give pickups to four new half-hours along with five dramas. 

“Standing” has been a quiet but sturdy player for ABC on its Friday block.
