Divided RTC to drive 120Hz display while MCU in low power or stop mode

Looking for inspiration...

IoT application. I have a K81/K82 that drives a JDI display.  The display has pixel memory, and so will hold the display image as long as  a nominal 120Hz signal is present on its clock-in pin. Currently the plan is for the display clock to be generated by a FreeRTOS 8ms periodic task pulsing a GPIO pin. I'd like relieve the RTOS of this task, instead driving the 120Hz (or 128Hz, probably) from the TPM.  In addition, I want to clock the TPM from the RTC Oscillator.  This way I hope to stop the K8x core, but leave the TMP peripheral running.

Is this doable?

(The ultimate goal is the minimum energy consumption)

Thanks,
Denis

Looks like this is not possible with Kinetis. Now opting for the display to have its own clock generator - basically a 32K oscillator and an 8-stage flip-flop. It'll consume 1-2uA, so is within the IoT energy budget.  Downside is that it adds $2 to the per-board cost.
