Mesmerize envisions a world where a secret organization of hypnotists operate covertly through the world's universities. Calling themselves the Mesmers, they look for the next generation of hypnotic youth to train to protect the world from calamity. The Mesmers have been highly involved through world affairs since their inception: they averted the Cuban Missile Crisis and ended the Cold War. The only reason they couldn't stop Hitler was because he was a Mesmer, too.

This first season of Mesmerize follows the story of college freshman Alton Downs as he trains to become a member of the Mesmer society.
