DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2015) Tim Allen returns as Mike Baxter in "Last Man Standing," a show about everything that families are dealing with today - all filtered through the blunt "man's man" comedy of an iconic American dad. Mike continues to be surrounded by forces seeking to challenge his ideas on just about everything in which he strongly believes. He tries to escape all the female drama at home in the warm, manly embrace of his job at the Outdoor Man store, a sporting goods emporium where he is marketing director. Also, he still revels in his Outdoor Man video blog, which he delightedly uses as a pulpit for his opinions and a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault. When he's supposed to be selling mountain bikes or kayaks, for some reason he always ends up spouting off about the environment, Obamacare, international politics or any other topic occupying his mind. "Last Man Standing" stars Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, Nancy Travis as Vanessa Baxter, Molly Ephraim as Mandy Baxter, Kaitlyn Dever as Eve Baxter, Amanda Fuller as Kristin Baxter, Jordan Masterson as Ryan Vogelson, Christoph Sanders as Kyle Anderson, Flynn Morrison as Boyd Baxter, Jonathan Adams as Chuck Larabee and Hector Elizondo as Ed Alzate. "Last Man Standing" was created by Jack Burditt. Executive producers are Matt Berry, Tim Allen, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Shawn Levy, Richard Baker and Rick Messina. "Last Man Standing" is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
