It's an 8 to 10 year old miniseries there are kids with powers. One kid is kept in a certain machine and the bad guy uses it to influence people. Only seems I can remember the bad guy is speaking a certain hymn to make someone commit suicide and in another he sits in a car being pulled over by a police officer and is trying to influence him to bring a helicopter to search for some kids. He twirls his finger like a helicopter to reinforce the suggestion.
As much as I search online I can't find anything referring to that.
