just need to make sure it is plenty strong to handle the weight of that size of a TV. Will need to tie into the 2x4 studs. are you going to attempt this on your own? if so,,I would make depth and width measurements on the TV to be used...then this will determine the length of the sides of the triangular frame I would build to support the shelf. might suggest you use 2x6s for the triangular frame. make your meausements along both walls for the depth of frame/shelf you will need. then add the third leg of the triangler to span that gaps of the two triangle legs spanning both walls. then attach the pieces that go onto the wall using 2 1/2 or 3 inch lag bolts so you will get plenty of structural tie to the 2x4 wall studs ...hopefully you will be able to tie into at least two studs per side. then after both side pieces are attached to the wall tied the front fo the frame and third leg of the triagle to the two side pieces with lag bots as well. then measure for the size of the triangular shelf you need and get it cut out of 3/4 inch plywood ...this should work. good luck hire it out if it sounds to complex.
