This info will help all of us give you a better answer to your question.
Found this online:
How much does a 60 inch TV weigh?
For example, your standard 32" flat-screen LCD TV will weigh between 25-30 pounds on average, while a much larger 60" flat-screen LED TV can be much heavier, sometimes weighing upwards of 75-100 pounds. Meanwhile, a large flat-screen projection TV can weigh as much as 200 pounds.
I would not attempt this mod without engineering help from the manufacturer (and good luck with that
