How to keep my TV on full screen while using a HDMI wire to watch netflix from my mac book pro?

I have been watching netflix through my HDMI wire streaming from my mac book pro. However when I want to use my laptop while watching a movie on full screen on the TV, the full screen no longer stays full screen and becomes the regular link screen with a smaller screen. Is there a way where I can use my laptop... show more I have been watching netflix through my HDMI wire streaming from my mac book pro.

Thanks in advance for your help.
