    The Whispers is a new TV series dealing with an alien invasion of Earth by using our most unlikely resource to achieve world domination—our children. As the kids unwittingly help these unseen enemies, the clock counts down in this suspenseful race to save humanity. It stars Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence, Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe/Drew Bennigan, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Brianna Brown as Lena Lawrence, Catalina Denis as Dr. Maria Martinez, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry.

    The Whispers will air on ABC in 2014.

    While going through new shows for this year I came across the tidbit that The Whispers is is based on the Ray Bradbury short story Zero Hour from The Illustrated Man. The Wikipedia description for Zero Hour is "Children across the country are deeply involved in an exciting game they call 'Invasion.' Their parents think of it as harmless fun until the invasion actually occurs."

    I haven't come across a premiere date yet though it is still slated for the 2014-2015 season.

    ... and it's over & done after 1 season. Announced this week by ABC that they've officially cancelled the show after already letting the contracts for the actors expire during the summer.
