The Whispers is a science fiction drama series created by Soo Hugh and produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television. The show premiered on ABC in June 2015 and ran for one season before it was cancelled due to low ratings. The Whispers follows the story of an alien entity that takes the form of a character named Drill and manipulates children to do its bidding in order to wreak havoc on the world. Lily Rabe plays FBI child specialist, Claire Bennigan, who is tasked with investigating a series of strange and seemingly unrelated incidents involving young children. The investigation leads her to discover a link between the cases, as each child has been communicating with an imaginary friend named Drill who is actually an alien entity.

As the investigation progresses, more and more children fall under Drill's influence and begin to carry out his dangerous plans. Barry Sloane plays Wes Lawrence, a Defense Department operative who assists Claire in her investigation and becomes her love interest. Milo Ventimiglia also stars as John Doe, a mysterious figure with a connection to Drill, and Derek Webster portrays Jessup Rollins, another FBI agent.

The show features a strong cast of child actors, including Kylie Rogers as Claire's son Henry, who becomes one of Drill's targets, and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Ethan, a young boy who is instrumental in helping Claire and Wes stop Drill's plans. Brianna Brown plays Lena Lawrence, Wes's estranged wife, who becomes a key player in the fight against Drill.

The Whispers is a show that is full of twists and turns, as the characters work to unravel the mystery of Drill's intentions and how to stop him before it's too late. The show's special effects are visually impressive, particularly the scenes involving Drill's "portal" that allows him to communicate with the children.

Overall, The Whispers is an intriguing and suspenseful show that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The performances by the cast, particularly Rabe and Sloane, are strong and the storyline is engaging. While the show unfortunately did not garner enough viewership to continue, it is still worth a watch for fans of science fiction and thrillers.

The Whispers is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on June 1, 2015.
