I think we need more detailed step by step workflow to make suggestions.
Are you viewing on broadcast monitor as you work. If you're doing color correction in After Effects and you lose contrast and color on down convert, maybe it's the way you're doing the down convert.

For the kind of workflow you're doing I'd convert the EX codec to 10bit Uncompressed or Apple ProRes 4:2:2 for best color space handling.
