Season 1

The Whispers is an American science fiction television series developed by Soo Hugh from the 1951 Ray Bradbury short story "Zero Hour" from The Illustrated Man, in which a series of accidents occurs around children, who all communicate with the same invisible and seemingly imaginary friend called Drill.

We love to play games with our children. But what happens when someone else starts to play with them too? Someone we don't know. Can't see. Can't hear. In The Whispers, someone - or something - is manipulating the ones we love most to accomplish the unthinkable.

In America's centre of political power, Washington D.C., several kids have been talking about their imaginary friend. What the parents don't know is this friend is not as imaginary as they assume.

And when the mysterious games they play turn dangerous, FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is called in to investigate. Is this just a case of children being led down the wrong path? Or is it something far more unsettling... as she searches for the answer.

Halfway across the world, in the middle of the Sahara Desert, Defense Department operative Wes Lawrence unearths a strange, haunting geological phenomenon. Are these mysteries connected?

The answer will force them all to face their greatest fear. That perhaps the enemy... is already in their homes.

As the clock counts down, it's a suspenseful race to save not only their families, but the world. Before it's too late.

The Whispers stars Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence, Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe/Sean Bennigan, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Kristen Connolly as Lena Lawrence, Catalina Denis as Dr. Maria Benavidez, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry Bennigan.

The Whispers is produced by ABC Studios, with Amblin TV as co-producer. Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Zack Estrin and Dawn Parouse Olmstead are executive producers. The pilot was written and co-executive produced by Soo Hugh.
