The blurb on ABC.com is a bit more specific about that resource.

I just saw a promo for this show. After all the season/series finales lately, I am ready for some summer fun. June 1, I think.

"THE WHISPERS" - PREMIERES MONDAY, JUNE 1

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 commit the unthinkable. In the country's center of political power, Washington D.C., several kids have been talking about their imaginary friend, Drill. What the parents don't know is that this friend is not as imaginary as they think. And when the mysterious games Drill convinces them to play turn dangerous, FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is called in to investigate. What is it that Drill wants, and why does he - or it - only communicate with children? As the clock counts down, a suspenseful race will begin 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, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Kristen Connolly as Lena Lawrence, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry Bennigan. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Zack Estrin. The pilot was written and co-executive produced by Soo Hugh, who also developed the series. "The Whispers" is produced by ABC Studios, with Amblin TV as co-producer.

I'm impressed by the child actors and I want to see more. It does sort of seem like a mashup of Poltergeist and Close Encounters, and then there's the Speilberg connection. I won't hold that against it (yet, lol).

I love anything Lily Rabe is in and the child actors are good. Usually I get confused with so much going on at once and add in the alien factor but this has my interest so far so I'll keep watching.

With many shows out for summer decided to give this a shot. So far I am glad I did, the hour went very quickly to me. A good sign it was not boring and didn't drag. I think I am sticking with it.
