Creepy alien scifi series The Whispers debuts June 1 on ABC.

Starring Revenge’s Barry Sloane, Heroes’ Milo Ventimiglia, and American Horror Story: Coven’s Lily Rabe, the series centers on a number of seemingly unconnected children across the country who begin conversing with a new imaginary friend who persuades them to carry out a number of shocking acts.

When FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is called in to investigate, she discovers some unsettling facts. All of the children name the same imaginary playmate, Drill, despite having never met each other. And all of the children share an unsettling connection.

Is someone – or something – attempting to alter the political and economic landscape of the world by using the children of those in positions of power as pawns?

As the clock counts down, a suspenseful race will begin to save not only their families, but the world itself.

The series kicks off on Monday June 1 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on ABC.

We’ve got first look photos from the premiere episode “X Marks the Spot” to share below.

THE WHISPERS - 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. ABC's "The Whispers" premieres MONDAY, JUNE 1 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on ABC. (ABC/Eike Schroter)BARRY SLOANE
