Exclamation Mirroring iMac display to TV can I shut off the display?

I don't think it can be done but figured I'd ask maybe there's other options out there. I basically want to sleep the display but keep things mirrored to my TV set. If I put it to sleep normally it shuts off on my TV.

If not, can I turn down the brightness beyond what the keyboard allows me via some app maybe?

It's supposed to turn off your display.
